We spent two weeks on Koh Chang and loved the island. But the highlight was our 3 nights at the Baan Rim Nam guesthouse. It is a charming, if a little dated, wooden guesthouse. Everything is kept simple but is done well. From the honesty beer fridge to the free canoes and the basic breakfast. Ian was away when we stayed but the staff Pui and Mimi looked after us well. Mimi has a lot of fun using her travel a translate app on her phone. So although her English was limited, she could communicate well with us. She was very lovely and organised snorkeling and our nightly boat ride to Phu Talay and Iyara restautrant on the river. Ian was super helpful planning our trip and his website is a mine of information. It certainly helped us make the most of our holiday. See you in 2022.

Thanks for the feedback. Apologies for the very late reply :-) We're currently rebuilding the guesthouse, so it will be totally new when you visit next ( apart from the deck by the river which won't change )

We loved our recent stay with Ian and Mam at Baan Rim Nam. It’s is a wonderful spot with the river at the front and mangroves at the back. The beach is just two minutes walk away. The wooden deck by the river is the ideal place to read and watch the world go. They have a few kayaks for guests as well as beach towels and mats plus dry bags guests can borrow. The beach is quiet, we couldn’t believe it was the busiest time of year. And the local beach restaurant was a lovely spot to have lunch or a sunset beer. There aren't any shops next to the guesthouse. You have to walk to the village, about 15 minutes. And you will find good street food, local food stalls as well as Crust bakery and a 7-eleven. Many thanks for a very enjoyable stay.

Baan Rim Nan is a lovely 5 room guest house located on the estuary accessed by a long private elevated walkway through the mangroves. The spacious decks offering a lovely view over the river towards the east. The outside areas are in shade most of the day and nicely catch the breeze. Most guests spent a fair amount of time chilling out on the main covered deck reading and watching the ever changing river traffic. Free canoes are available to paddle down to the beaches. If you are a party animal I would suggest going elsewhere! Our room was comfortable, with effective AC though the shower was not particularly powerful at times. WiFi was available everywhere. Breakfast is a simple affair and we usually bought fresh fruit from town that we could keep in the communal fridge along with cold drinks/beers constantly available and charged to your room. There are lots of restaurant options in town. It takes about 15 minutes to walk along the narrow road to get to the main road with all the shops, restaurants etc. We particularly liked the fresh seafood place just a few metres to the left of the junction where the fresh seafood is displayed; you choose your fish and they charge TBH50 to cook it. All rough and ready but excellent fare. The beach is a 10 minute walk down a track behind the entrance. The first bar/restaurant was our favourite and most guests ate there at some point in their stay. The highlight of our stay is the great attention to detail by Ian who is constantly available to offer help and advice, book taxis, arrange transfers etc. He is a walking encyclopaedia of everything Koh Chang and happily answers question both by email in the months leading up to your stay and during your stay. He is absolutely brilliant. We would certainly stay here again and recommend Baan Rim Nan without hesitation.

Our 4th visit to Koh Chang and also Baan Rim Nam. Refurbished fishermen's cottage set on the river and a 5min walk from the beach. Ian has been busy and replaced the 2 decks following their destruction during the 2019 floods. It's great to have the option of lying in sun or shade. There are a choice of canoes and kayaks you can use for a paddle down the river or out in to the sea. My preference is an early morning paddle down the river just as the sun is starting to come up. There is a fridge from which you can get water/beer/soft drinks and works on an honesty system. No fridge in your room but there is usually room in the honesty fridge if you want to store anything cold. Note - the prices for water and drinks are normal shop prices - not the usual over inflated mini bar prices. Saves carrying beer and water ba k from the village. A basic breakfast of toast, museli, tea and coffee is available - also at a reasonable price. We love staying here as it is so laid back and peaceful yet only a scooter ride away from the village or a 5 min walk through the palm trees to the beach.

Just wanted to say Thank you to Ian, mam and their staff for a very enjoyable few days at their guesthouse on Koh Chang. We had a wonderful time and enjoyed the kayaking, touring the island by scooter and sunset ciocktails at the Palm beach restaurant close by. Hope to see you all again next year.
